How do I purchase items from your site?

Our site is equipped with a typical shopping cart. All you need to do is click the Add To Cart option for each item you wish to purchase. Each time you select this option, your shopping cart appears with the updated information indicating what you've just selected. You then have the following options to choose from: continue shopping, check out, update your cart, empty your cart, remove items, or add coupons. Before you can check out, you'll be prompted to enter your username and password if you already have an account established with us. If you don't have an account, you'll be prompted to create one. You only have to complete this step once. Once you establish an account with us, you can quickly and easily check out from our store simply by entering your username and password. Please note that you must have cookies enabled to use the feature.

I selected the Bill Me option when I created my account. How do I use a credit card instead?

To change your account billing option, simply log in to your account and select the Edit Your Account option. Deselect the Bill Me option and then enter in your credit card information. Then, click the Preview Account Changes button and check your new information on the Confirm Account Information page.

Please note this only applies to orders if you go back and enter your credit card information prior to checking out from our store. If you have already checked out and received a confirmation email, you'll need to contact customer relations by phone. We'll need to manually add credit card information to your order.

Coupons and Special Promotions

How do I apply a coupon to my purchase?

If you have a coupon you'd like to use, simply add the desired items to your cart and proceed to checkout when finished. In the Coupons And Special Promotions section of your shopping cart, enter the coupon code in the designated field and then click the Add Coupon button. When you do, you'll notice that your coupon status changes to indicate you've added a coupon. In addition, the products listed in your cart are updated to reflect the promotion prices associated with the coupon you've entered. Special pricing is ONLY applied to products associated with the coupon(s) entered.

What do I do if my coupon doesn't work?

First, check to make sure that the promotion associated with your coupon is still valid and that you're entering the coupon within the specified time frame indicated in the promotion. If you use a coupon after it has expired, you'll receive an error message. If the coupon is still valid, make sure you've entered the code correctly. Re-type it to be sure. Also, check to make sure that you have items in your cart that are associated with the coupon. Special pricing is ONLY applied to products associated with the coupon(s) entered. If everything seems to be in order but you still can't get your coupon to work, please contact our customer relations department.

Customer Relations

How do I determine what the expiration date is for my current subscription?

If you have received a renewal notice for your journal subscription, the expiration date printed indicates the month of the last paid issue of the current subscription period that will be delivered to you.

The expiration date can also be determined by looking at the last four digits above your label's mailing information. If you're having difficulty locating your expiration date, please contact customer relations.

U.S. toll-free: 1-800-223-8720
Fax : 1-800-508-2592

According to my records, my subscription doesn't expire for a few months yet. Why am I receiving renewal notices now?

The notice you received is an early reminder of the expiration date. We generally send out renewal notices early to accommodate our corporate customers who have budget considerations. You may choose to renew now, or disregard the early notices and respond to a later notice, closer to your last issue.

If you choose to renew without payment now by selecting Bill Me Later, you will receive an invoice for your renewal after your current subscription expires.

If you choose to renew with payment, your subscription will be renewed for full annual term past your current expiration date.

Where do I renew my subscription at the Eli Journals Web site?

At this time, there is no method for renewing a subscription through our Web site. We regret any inconvenience this may cause. You may arrange another method of payment by contacting our customer relations department.

I haven't received one of the issues of my journal subscription. What do I do?

Journals ship during the month prior to the issue date-for example, the June issues begin shipping by April 30th and continue to ship throughout the month of May. Please allow until the end of the month for delivery of any journal. Our products are shipped using the U.S. Postal Service. Any problems or delays with regular mail delivery are beyond our control. If you still have not received an issue at the end of the month, you may contact our customer relations department to request a replacement. Please understand that we only stock issues five months prior to the currently shipping journal.

I just received one of your journals with a subscription order form. I never ordered this-am I under any obligation to pay?

The journal you received was simply a complimentary issue that we thought might interest you. Please accept it with our thanks.

Per the "Notice of Obligation" on the document, it is not an invoice; you are under no obligation to pay and, unless you place an order for the journal, additional issues will not be sent.

If you're interested in starting a subscription, you may return the top portion of the order form via mail, or call us. Please have the order form handy if calling. If you don't wish to start a subscription, no response is necessary-no invoices or issues will follow.

I just received one of your journals with something called a "Statement Continuation." I never ordered this-is it an invoice?

The journal you received was simply a complimentary issue that we thought might interest you. Please accept it with our thanks.

Per the "Notice of Obligation" on the document, it is not an invoice; you are under no obligation to pay and, unless you place an order for the journal, additional issues will not be sent.

If you're interested in starting a subscription, you may return the bottom portion of the Statement of Continuation via mail, or call us. Please have the statement handy if calling. If you don't wish to start a subscription, no response is necessary—no invoices or issues will follow.

I'm receiving invoices for a journal I didn't order! Is this a trick to make me pay for something I didn't ask for?

Not at all. We find that in today's hectic world, busy customers occasionally don't recall sending in the offer cards for free issues. It isn't our policy to start and/or bill for subscriptions without receiving a request from a customer. When our company receives such a request, then, and only then, is a subscription started. If you have requested a free issue and then decide not to subscribe, all you need to do is write "CANCEL" on the invoice and return it to us. There is no further obligation and you are welcome to keep any issues received. Our policy is stated clearly on the back of every offer card.

I paid my bill recently but I've just received another notice. Why is that?

If you've recently paid, the notice you received may have crossed in the mail with your payment. You may wish to contact our customer relations department if you feel you've received a bill in error.

I placed an online order at the store but I haven't received my order. What do I do?

All successfully placed orders should arrive within three to four weeks. You can check your order history by signing in to the store and following the links. Occasionally, heavy Web traffic may cause an order to be confirmed even though it hasn't been successfully placed. We are working on ways to overcome this difficulty, but often the problem is due to heavy Web usage-which is beyond our control. Rest assured, the information you have given us remains private-we do not store payment information in a publicly accessible area. If you've placed an order and have not yet received it, please contact our customer relations department so that we may investigate. Please have your order confirmation email accessible when you call. Please note that some products, such as the following, will not ship until we receive payment: Smart Tips and Quick Tricks booklets, all CD products, resource guides and reports, reference cards and guides, and Quick Skills Kits.

What is the standard shipping time for your products?

Once we receive your order, depending on the number of orders received and stock available at our warehouse, standard shipping time is three to four weeks. Special arrangements can be made prior to your order for an additional shipping fee. If you wish to make special arrangements, please contact our customer relations department. Please note that some products, such as the following, will not ship until we receive payment: Smart Tips and Quick Tricks booklets, all CD products, resource guides and reports, reference cards and guides, and Quick Skills Kits.

Why are International prices higher than U.S prices?

Due to the high cost of shipping items outside the United States, we charge a higher price for international orders. The higher price incorporates the extra shipping and handling charges.

What does my subscription to a publication that includes EKJ Online service entitle me to?

Each paid EKJ Online subscription includes a print journal issue mailed to you each month, as well as unlimited online archive access for one user to that specific publication title for the duration of your subscription term. If you have paid for more than one EKJ Online subscriptions under the same account, you'll be able to search through all of those titles paid for under the same username.

Each paid EKJ Online subscription includes online access for one user along with one journal issue mailed to you each month. We do offer EKJ Online abilities for multiple users. For an additional fee, the subscription would include unlimited archive access for the account holder who receives the print copy each month and would grant online permission for multiple users under that account holder's online account.
